‘Next Years Words Await Another Voice’- Welcome 2007

Filed under: Chicken Soup For The Soul,opinions,personal — Kaveeta Oberoi Kaul @ 11:53 am


This picture has been created by Donna Sonnenberg aka North whose blog exemplifies what a wonderful artist she is.

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot

Its pages blank, lets go on to writing a life which has tried to rise above small things. If a war is to be waged, it should be against ones shortcomings. Peace be made with another’s frailities.The above is more of a re-affirmation. I am no good at making resolutions. It suggests as if the previous years have been devoid of any analytical and serious thinking. I’d rather look at the potential of the past years than its flaws. And of course to add He who breaks a resolution is a weakling; He who makes one is a fool.” πŸ™‚

If anything, one looks forward to a year where realistic goals are met, to pave the path for those more ambitious. Disappontments to be interpreted as challenges, and obstacles as a pointer to an alternate direction.

One hopes there will be a lot more posts ‘In Praise’ than those written in the category of ‘this gets to me’. To achieve that one wishes for Media to focus on stories which uplift our senses, validate the goodness of humans, in equal measure if not more..God knows just how urgent is the need of Heroes and role models in our society today.

Going by the pledge to realistic ambitions, one is not aspiring for Utopia to prevail, but it would be wonderful to feel peace, security, absence of fear, camaraderie for all. It is fear which initiates violence. Loss of faith in ourselves and others, is the most unsurmountable loss of all. It is all about this faith which leads to Peace. Peace precludes inner strength.

How I love this song:

Itni Shakti Hamay Dena Daata
Man Ka Vishvaas Kamzoor Ho Na
Hum Chale Nek Raste Pe Humse
Bhool Kar bhee Koi Bhool Ho Na

Dur Agyaan Ke Ho Andhere
Tu Hame Gyan Ki Roshni De
Har Burai Se bachte rahe Hum
Jitni Bhee de Bhali Jindagi De
Bair Ho Na Kisika Kisise
Bhaavana Man Me Badlay Ki Ho Na
Hum Chale Nek Raste pe Humse
Bhool Kar Bhee Koi Bhool Ho Na

Itni Shakti Hamay Dena Daata
Man Ka Vishvaas Kamzoor Ho Na

Hum Na Soochey Humay Kya Mila Hai
Hum Ye Soochey Kiya Kya Hai Arpan
Phool Khushiyon Ke Baante Sabheeko
Sabka Jeevan Hi Ban Jaye Madhuban
Apni Karuna Ka Jal Tu Baha Ke
Kar De Paawan Har Ek Mann Ka Koona
Hum Chale Nek Raste Pe Humse
Bhool Kar bhee Koi Bhool Ho Na

Itni Shakti Hamay Dena Daata
Man Ka Vishvaas Kamzoor Ho Na

Worth pondering on..each line.

Which reminds me, I have done my share of reflecting, after hours of delving on various options have finally created an original, wondrous quote for you, while you usher in 2007..which goes as follows:

Happy New Year!
